Distortion of Science to Inhibit the Adoption of Infectious Disease Strategies

Distortion of science for political and economic ends has prevented the allocation of needed resources to stop the spread of dangerous pathogens. This places all of society as a whole at risk, but exacting an insufferable toll of death and disability on our front-line healthcare workers, along with our most vulnerable populations. COVID-19 has demonstrated how dangerous this scenario has become. We have seen the United States top officials publicly flaunt the wearing of masks and use s

8 fruits that do more harm than good

In such fruits, the harm is much greater than the benefit: their use causes spikes in insulin levels, fatigu

Using the malaria parasite’s weapons against them

By testing odours associated with malaria infection identified in a previous study, it was discovered that a specific odour-blend, when augmented with human body odour, is attractive to anopheline mosquitoes and could be used as a complementary vector control tool along with existing strategies. Parasites and their insect vectors coevolve, and this long-term association maintains the transmission of the parasites from infected to non-infected vertebrate hosts. Researchers in 2005 demon

What’s New in Malaria Epidemiology?

To reduce malaria burden on a global scale, concerted global efforts will require enhanced surveillance of endemic transmission and imported malaria cases, mosquito vector populations, climate change, and human mobility, coupled with innovative prevention and control strategies. Malaria is an infectious disease transmitted through the bite of Anopheles mosquitoes. The single-celled parasites of the Plasmodium genus are the cause for this disease, and are further classified into over a hundr

The changing narrative of MRSA infection control in the United States

MRSA is now endemic in the United States with approximately 2% of the general population carrying the disease. In a commentary published today in Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Control, Dr. Kevin Kavanagh talks us through the events that led to this situation and makes the case for combatting the issue through universal screening of MRSA on admission to U.S. hospitals. A quote often attributed to Winston Churchill aptly observed “The Americans can always be trusted to do the right
